As with all UV bulbs, it is best to have a spare replacement bulb on hand before the end of the lifespan of the light in use. Two Tides always recommends when the 10-11 month rolls around, it's best to get a replacement so that we aren't stuck in a situation where the lamp burns out, and we don't realize it until one of our prized fish gets an infection and we can't prevent the infection from spreading until the bulb we need is both in stock and after shipping time (we speak from personal experience).
Here is a step-by-step UV Bulb Replacement Guide as well as a Quartz Sleeve Replacement Guide for the Aqua Ultraviolet Classic Series. Two Tides recommends replacing these UV bulbs every 12-14 months, and the Quartz Sleeves either every 2-3 years. Also clean the sleeve if it ever turns yellow or brown (due to buildup), or if you notice a reduction in performance of the unit, making sure to wipe it off thoroughly with alcohol afterwards. After bulbs, dirty sleeves are the biggest culprit of performance reduction. If the buildup is too much to clean, replace the sleeve. Broken Quartz isn't fun to clean up.
